What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you looking for a school where:

  • Children appreciate the care and nurture that talented staff provide.
  • The ethos, ‘Together we will be successful’ is shared by all.
  • There is great challenge particularly to consistently raise attainment and narrow gaps.
  • Community involvement is at the heart of the school’s mission.

John Clifford School has been allocated funding by Nottinghamshire County Council to support local children to access education. The Enhance Provision Unit has been open since February 2023 and provides an educational setting for children who are struggling to access mainstream education. The children attend in addition to their mainstream school on a part-time and bespoke basis.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Teaching Assistant with experience of working with young people with specific needs in either a specialist or mainstream setting. This position seeks to support the delivery of high quality teaching across the core areas as well as providing a focus on nurture, social and emotional skills and therapeutic supports.

What the school offers its staff

We can offer you:

  • The chance to work with diverse groups of learners.
  • A wide variety of induction, mentoring and support.
  • Bespoke and individual coaching to meet your needs.
  • A vibrant staff and governor team who work hard but also have fun.
  • A close supportive partnership with our local community.

We are looking for a teacher who can demonstrate:

  • The ability to work in a small team to make a positive contribution to the lives of children who find mainstream education a challenge.
  • The desire to forge and build trusting relationships with children, parents and carers, professional colleagues and outside agents.
  • A knowledge of a broad curriculum that will support bespoke packages offered to children.
  • The motivation and desire to learn and improve both independently and from others.
  • A commitment to make a difference to diverse learners from across our schools.
  • Consistent high-quality learning opportunities.

The EPU opened in January 2023, and the appointee will work as part of a team to further develop policy and enhance a curriculum offer that supports the wide range of skills and knowledge that our children will require, to access all education and to become lifelong learners.

This position is ideal for a qualified and experienced Teaching Assistant, looking for a unique opportunity to gain experience in supporting individual needs and working with professional agents.
